At first it didn't load. It was a big blank. I thought that was exactly perfect. As far as I know, here's the REAL Bob update from Furthur et al:









Blank. Zilch.

Absolutely pathetic and insulting to the fans. A guy collapses in front of thousands in a theater and tens of thousands in the world, apparently dead drunk and/or ill, and the only statement is "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" ....

Anyone of us could come up with a ahem well designed set list. So what! They didn't play great tonight or any other night. I just can't put my finger on it, but there's something missing from that band that has always prevented them from playing great. Damn. It's right on the tip of my tongue. Ah, hmm, gimme a minute...I'll think of it.

They went out and played a great set tonight, but by all means shoot Bob an email and tell him that's not good enough.

At once a problematic, puzzling, and entirely disappointing statement, RJ...how the mighty hath fallen. Moments like this, I realize we really are a dying community.

Yes, the Furthur set lists are great.

Midnight Hour was originally what they were going to do in Set 2 during the Stumblin Bob show. It was changed during set break. Guess they weren't comfortable with the "my love comes tumblin down" part?

Maybe Space coming out of the break would make it possible for Bob to fall over and just be part of the overall weirdness ...

I guess we're supposed to take Touch of Grey as their statement. Everyone in the audience does a nice singalong to "we will survive" and that's that.

Plan B, if he DID fall down, would be Ashes Ashes ...

Apples and oranges.

They're handling the p.r. like bad corporate hacks. "Oil spill? What oil spill?"

I don't expect fairy dust, but I would like to know that someone at least (a) respects the fans as people with functioning brains and (b) retains a little of the good old hippie Let's Be Real mentality. Even if it's just spin (at which Jerry was brilliant), at least it would be semi-honest, respectful spin.
